You have given me some hope!  I will watch it tonight.  :)

"Woke" is now almost exclusively used by those who seek to deride it, those who chafe at the activism from which it sprang. Opponents to the idea are seeking to render it toxic. They use it to stand in for change itself, for evolution, for an accurate assessment of history and society that makes them uncomfortable and deflates their hagiographic view of American history.

The whole series has continuity problems with the movies.

Yeah, it was a great finale.  There's rumours of season 2 now.  Not sure if it's a good idea though.

Entertaining end. Stole the mask thing from the cartoon though :P

Super ending. Also, I laughed out loud when Obi Wan said "Hello there."  :lol:

Obi-Wan confronting Vader was among some of the greatest Star Wars scenes ever. The acting was top-notch, especially from Christensen. Also, they addressed that thing where Obi-Wan calls Vader "Darth" in Ep. 4. :D

So, why did he just walk away from Darth Vader when the dialogue made it clear that he realized that Aniken was no longer there? Wouldn't it have been a lot better if the dialogue had indicated that there was still some hope left for Aniken?

Whats the overall consensus on this then?

The buzz seems mostly negative....

Started good, ended good. Middle was meh. Acting was decent. If you're a stickler for canon and consistency of story lines* you won't like it.



*although Star Wars hasn't ever really been that great at keeping a coherent storyline.

Yeah, the start was good and they finished strong but the middle drags. It should have been a 2 and a half hour movie.

Overall, I enjoyed it, especially as someone who has come around to appreciating the prequels. If you still despise them then this is not for you.

I despise the prequels because the story execution sucked (the story itself could have been and should have been amazing), the acting was terrible, and the directing atrocious. 

Other then that, they were fine.

Yeah I'd stay away then or just catch the cool parts on YT.
